  1. Want To Buy Classifieds
    To be honest, unmodified/non/customized version of this model is one of the most difficult to find. I have only seen two customized ones on gunbroker: one that sold previously has the slide top flattened and one currently listed on gunbroker is perfect except the serrated frontstrap...
  2. Beginner's Corner
    New member here, I've read stuff on the forum for years and I've finally decided I should join in on the discussions and learn. About my 1911 experience, my first handgun purchase was a Kimber Crimson Carry 2 that I still own. I was 21 and didn't know much aside from the fact I always wanted...
  3. 1911 Gunsmithing
    Hello all - Two Fast question for smith pros; So this little OACP I acquired a few months ago has really become something special for me. There's already been a great deal of work done to it, and some diligent reseaorch has uncovered enough history on the gun to discover it had been sent to...

    I have 3 well known and rare firearm books. As for full or partial trades, I am looking for nice C&R blued guns, an early 1911 Swenson marked ambi safety, early Packmayr marked magazines or other early 70s magazines marked by noted smiths. Always looking for anything early Hoag, Pachmayr...

    I know a tease if there ever was one! These two Colt Police Positive knives were the first of my personal carry on duty. The all stainless was a gift from my mentor and the coated black stainless I found of a trip to a lgs years ago. These were the super steel back then 440 stainless. As you...

    A local shop has the 3, 4 and 6 inch new Phythons catching sun in the front shelf. I'm struck by the 4 inch tube - it won't be carried on the street - I'm too invested in S&W gear and guns for that and the cylinder latch, well, that's a story unto itself. But for a woods gun, I'm thinking I...

    I'm looking to buy a railed Colt govt 1911 in 45 acp! Mostly looking at the Colt Rail Guns but would definitely be interested in the Combat Unit guns with checkering as well. I can't do the M45 as it would be out of my budget. Thanks!
  8. General 1911 talk
    Did I plan on buying any new guns for the rest of the year? No. Did I downsize my 1911s? Yes. And yet, @Karl Beining just had to post a Colt Wiley Clapp Government 45 in the classifieds. A week later and I think I've got a new carry gun for 2023. I'm really excited to see how this shoots. Big...

    Okay, gentlemen, we have a very special one here. Today we have a 1993 Colt MkIV OACP Enhanced. While in overall remarkable condition for its age, this Officer is not in “Collector” condition due to the upgrades..... but we can forgive that though because the upgrades are all tasteful & well...

    I bought this Garthwaite Delta from @Karl Beining last May. It is an absolutely fabulous gun and i had no plans to sell, but Mark had to make me buy that danged CT Brian Monolith he posted, so I've got to pay the fiddler now. Below I have posted Karls description of this gun as it is far...

    Pretty happy to acquire a very good Colt 9mm Lightweight Commander, manufactured in 1951! It also came with an interesting Colt rampant pony figure. This one will be sent out for a custom build.
  12. Sold/Expired Classifieds
    As the title says, I am open to either buy or trade. For trade, the condition of your 9mm must be equal to that of my 1952 38 super commander. Yours doesn’t have to come with box and documents. https://www.1911addicts.com/threads/pre-60-commander-38-super.178038/#post-2707042 Thanks for...

    Just picked up this one as a base gun for another custom build. Interestingly, this one has a colt WWI-style short wide-spur hammer. Looks cool and works well without the hammer bite.

    Many thanks to forum members TheCollector, for making the introduction, and Xringchaser, for providing just what I was searching for. I had been on a quest for the perfect old Python. Everything I was seeing either had too many warts, or was being offered by unrealistic owners. After a brief...

    I have been searching for a pre-war colt 38 super but have an extra set of magazine and grips for sale. Pre-war original two-tone Colt 38 super magazine. As pictured, there are a couple areas that have minor wear but two-tone finish is perfect. The spring is good and strong. If you need a...

    So, I ended up grabbing the Colt Nighthawk that @Tim Schoenborn listed in the Classifieds last week. I picked it up today from my FFL and must say, I am more than pleased. Not only is Tim great to deal with, but the pistol was as described. Below is a picture from Tim’s Classified ad, lest...

    Not sure if it would be considered a bargain at $3400, but I believe it is pretty rare. I am not a 38 Super aficionado, but I know there are quite a few on the forum. Anyway, here is the link for the GB offering. https://www.gunbroker.com/item/953216543
  20. General 1911 talk
    Got the call from Steve O that my Colt Special Combat I picked up here in the classifieds is in the next batch. The gun had been owned by at least two members here before and the frame had already been officially golfballed by the Soup Nazi himself. As part of the build, the slide was also...
